The changes were made in response to stricter lockdown rules introduced in some countries as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread across the globe.

“This means that transport connections to and from the affected countries are no longer available,” said the SAPO in a statement.

SAPO has since identified 25 countries where postal services are currently available:

  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • Czech Republic
  • France
  • Great Britain
  • Greece
  • Hong Kong
  • Hungary
  • India
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Kenya
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Singapore
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Thailand
  • United Arab Emirates
  • United States of America

SAPO advised customers not to mail items to countries that are not on the list.

“If, however, an article has been posted to a country where the mail service is not available, it will be kept safely and dispatched immediately once transport connections become available,” it said.
